With this manual you can repair the backcover of your HUAWEI P30 lite independently and inexpensively.

Everybody knows it, you have been inattentive for a short moment, then your faithful companion is lying on the floor and you hope that nothing is broken. Unfortunately this wish is not always fulfilled. We at iDoc wouldn't call it the end of the world! Because we provide you with a simple guide to easily replace the back cover of your HUAWEI P30 lite.

The repair is not particularly difficult and consists of only a few steps. Since the back cover of your P30 lite is already damaged, you don't have to be as careful. If your backcover is already so severely splintered that the suction cup does not want to stick to it properly, you can put a piece of adhesive tape on the glass. This will give the suction cup a better grip and makes it easier to remove the back cover.

A new fingerprint sensor is already installed on our original HUAWEI P30 lite replacement back cover. Only the connecting cable has to be detached from the old backcover and connected to the new one.

We wish you a lot of fun with the repair!

    Used tools

    In this step, the heavily glued back cover of the Huawei P30 lite must be removed.

    1. First heat the frame of the unit with hot air. A temperature of 60-80 degrees is suitable for this. By heating the frame, the glue can be removed more easily.
    2. Place a suction cup in the lower part of the backcover and pull on it while pushing your opening tool into the resulting gap.

    Instead of a suction cup you can also use an iSlack. This tool works like pliers and has suction cups on both sides.To get into the narrow gap first, we recommend the opening tool iFlex, which is made of thin, strong metal. Once it is inserted, it is advisable to change to a plastic tool such as the iPlastix. This is not as easy to insert into the gap, as it is somewhat more flexible. However, it is very suitable for loosening the back cover, as it does not scratch the frame of the device.

    1. Guide a plastic plectrum into the already loosened part. This prevents the glue from reattaching.
    2. Work your way along the entire edge of the back cover. Keep heating up from time to time to make it easier to remove.
    3. Be careful and patient during this step to avoid breaking anything. The backcover is made of glass and can break easily.

    Be careful not to insert your tool too far into the device. On the left side are the cameras and on the right side is the flex cable of the fingerprint sensor.
